Show Notes

Lightning is complicated, difficult to use, sometimes doesn't work properly, requires a lot of learning and experimentation, and is still a risky place to hold Bitcoin funds.  Doesn't this make it a protocol destined to obscurity and disuse?  Doesn't it mean that better, simpler options will simply replace it, and Bitcoin is to fail from its extensive limitations?  Find out all the ways I find Lightning *doesn't* do its job well, & what I think it means for the future in today's Guy's Take episode!
